All stories are written from any of 7 themes. William Shakespeare wrote this book/drama/play from one of them. His genious made it one of the most played dramas on stage. At least 2 operas and some ballets have been written on the basis of W. Shakespeares work.Romeo and Juliet has also inspired others to write, orchestrate and make other things based on this very lovestory. One of the most wellknown might be West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein, the famours late conductor and composer. He also wrote a number of music, classified as American Classical Music. And yet he was a modernist. Just as William Shakespeare in his days.
